This novel is written in the present (1980s) with flashbacks to WWII by a pilot who crash landed in Belgium and was smuggled out of the country by the French resistence. He goes back to visit those who rescued him and finds out the price that some of those in the French Resistence had to pay to assist the American's trying to get out of the country.

The story is engaging although I must say that I did not particularly love the main character. I found him to be somewhat self centered and focused on the past rather than a nice life he spent with his wife (now deceased). His journey is interesting although sometimes the pace of the story is a little slower than I normally like. Overall worth the read if you are interested in WWII history.
